Did I title this right? don't wish to breach forum etiquette (such as it is), but consider you guys my buddies. I'll be back soon (I hope) - my dad had a stroke. Sort of touch and go. Looking forward to reading the 700 posts I have missed when I have the time!

Yes, you got it right, and sorry I have been too busy this day to see this til now, but whatever form of stroke your father had, be sure to bear in mind that a great deal of recovery is possible, at a number of different levels, over varying amounts of time...so, try to be patient in this most difficult of times. I have experienced it with a number of family members, from mild to extreme, and all were able to return to something productive, fulfilling and satisfying to them. Can be hard work but love and support, even from forum buddies, can help see you thru...

Hang in there Ring-lee-O; we'll all be thinking of you and your dad...

D - I hope all goes as well as it possibly can for your father and for you. I'll echo Tell's reminder that these setbacks can be surmounted with patience, love and hard work. You know where to find us when you need us.

Thanks to all for the kind words. I'm back at work for a few days. My parents don't live near me and the next big hurdle is convincing them to move here where I can be more support (I'm an only child). Thanks again everyone.
